What Are The Steps Of Selective Breeding?

It is started with a few "founder" stock, who are then bred and the F1 offspring with the so called "desirable "traits are bred to each other . There is a lot of close incest, parent to child and brother to sister to "fix" the desired traits ( desirable to man that is) like the ridge on the ridgeback dog or the flat face or the   dwarf legs and after several generations of this the new breed becomes clonelike or uniform and established  as all the members are homozygotes ( carrying like genes). It becomes a breed when all the offspring are alike , ie dalmations or border collies. But incest is still used frequently to "keep it in the family" or to maintain like features. All matings are planned and the unnatural changes derived  from wild stock come around from breeding from mutations.

This is not a selective breeding technique but a cloning one.
